"usa today" is reporting the first family is going to be staying at the $7 million home of a top democratic donor and, of course, bill clinton also vacationed in martha's vineyard during his time in the white house but he famously and i know that gene will remember this and ed will remember this, he famously switched his vacation destination after dick morris took polls to see which vacation spots would be better and they found out that wyoming, surprisingly enough, is better than martha's vineyard. nantucket is better than martha's vineyard but i don't think you'll find that in the poll. "usa today" is remibdsing us this morning franklin roosevelt was criticized for spending time on his yacht. john adams spent seven months in quincy, massachusetts, on his farm in 1797 and actually accused of abdicating his office and that criticism didn't help his bid for the second term. now, for republicans who are ready to poun
